Exploding In Sound Compilation/RIBS Writeup

Exploding In Sound:

There are far too few bands these days aiming to take over the world, but Boston’s RIBS seem to be up for the task. With a sound built for stadium audiences, their blend of epic alternative rock is already larger than life, and the young band has a stage show to match. Blistering space rock with anthemic choruses and mercilessly beaten drums¸ RIBS sound is primed with optimism, under thick layers of distorted guitars of course. The quartet’s range is truly special, as the band seamlessly moves from hook filled radio hits to slow burning post-rock rich in atmosphere and aggressive grunge to dark new wave inspired electro pop. Patience is a mandatory requirement for RIBS fans, as their carefully plotted moves and attention to detail can keep them away for extended periods of time, just making it all the more crucial when you get to see them live in action. Already earning comparisons to Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, and Radiohead throughout the press, RIBS are only getting started.

Bostonist Show Preview: Exploding In Sound Showcase

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

RIBS is a dark rock band sometimes compared to Muse or Queens of the Stone Age—or, less often, Joy Division. Sunday night, RIBS will play with other rough-edged local acts at Church, creating an evening of deep sounds with a metal tinge. If you have Monday off work, there’s no excuse for not rocking out all night.”

RIBS featured on the Future Legendary compilation

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

A pre-release version of “Even” has been featured on the third compilation by Exploding In Sound, Future Legendary. We’re joined by eighteen other bands, including Brooklyn-based Change The Station, dark new-wave/art rock/shoegazers Junius, and the awesomely-named Solar-Powered Sun Destroyer.

Here’s what Exploding In Sound had to say about us:

“RIBS are the latest band to emerge from the Boston scene, and poised to become one of the best… Their music evolves emotionally as it progresses, and soars with an atmospheric quality and intensity similar to Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age, or Muse… the band manages to write gorgeously moody rock that’s straightforward, pure, and will have you listening on repeat.”
